Call for Papers

KOME, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal published by the Hungarian Communication Studies Association is a platform for innovative interdisciplinary discourses with a focal point on pure communication inquiry.

Since its formation, there has been a wide debate on the (in)famous first axiom of pragmatics which states that „one cannot not communicate”. Questions of whether the subsuming of any and all kind of information processing in a category called „communication” results in a viable approach towards actions performed by various entities, or simply suits in the flow of the inflation of concepts so precious concerning human existence and co-existences are rarely answered, if even posed in the field of communication and media studies. Nowadays, applied communication researches seems not to care much about the fact that no researches on communication and media can be carried out without having preconceptions about the nature of the phenomenon constituting its object. Which, considering their disciplinal boundaries, would be perfectly acceptable if not only a marginal fraction of theories, serving as the basis for those researches had linked their assertions on communication to the preconceived notions that determine the demarcation of the domain of communication and media studies through the selection and organization of different perceptions in a given intellectual framework.

The unidentified nature of such preconceptions is relevant not exclusively in metatheories but it may also make the adequacy of a given theory questionable in additional researches, which results in a situation where these theories can not provide a general answer to a couple of the most basic questions, namely, “what is communication” “what is media” “who is able to communicate” etc. Therefore KOME welcomes researches and discussions with an eye toward defining and theorizing communication and the media, and invite authors to submit manuscripts exploring basic questions of the field with plausible reasoning, but regardless of the theoretical framework or the chosen methodology.

Manuscripts should be submitted through the Editorial Office []. Please follow KOME's instructions for authors.

DEADLINE: 15 October, 2013.

Marton Demeter & Janos Toth, editors
